By far the best copy. The show has its moments both ways.

I agree this althea has a slower grind to it.
I love the jams in this show. Funny cause I am not sure if they meant as much to me back then cause during the time in the show they rip them off we usually are all sitting getting stoned. I sure hope I was up and grooving during them but I do think more likely not. The tribal groove is always awesome. 5 stars because I loved the Hult and the sound is good here.

I recorded these shows with a portable Aiwa stereo recorder and a stereo Aiwa mic on my hat. I was up in the top balcony in the back. The theater was brand new and it sounded amazing up there at the top, kind of like the unamplified quality you hear at the metropolitan opera house. I recorded all three nights . And later on around 1992 when a young enthusiast copied all my tapes and posted his list on an early GD tapers website hew received hundreds of request for the Hult cCenter shows I had taped. I later used a sony D-5 and patched into many various Mics and got better quality recordings but not many people asked for many of those. The bass in the Hult Center sounded amazing tight and perfect and you can hear on all the recordings from there.

I also met Ken Kesey there outside and he told me two things 1. That you used to be able to walk across the Bering Strait and then the continents drifted apart. 2. That Jerry black T-shirt was not actually a T-shirt but it was a black tattoo on his body. I will never forget looking into his eyes. He might have been tripping. I was high but not on acid.
